Enamel Dial Black Arabic Numerals. A "transitional" watch between the watches pocket watches of the late 1800s and the modern wrist watch we know today it was watches like this that would have been worn on the wrist.
From pocket watches those trench watches inherited hinged front and back covers. The lugs for a strap looked like a thick wire attachment to the classical round shape of pocket watches rather than an integrated part of the body of the later and modern wrist watches. The name "wristlet" was used until the early 1930s and was eventually replaced by the modern name "wrist watch". For a transitional watch of the time this example is quite large at a full 30m in diameter (excluding crown) 32mm (inclusive).The watch is an early "Stem Set".
